Johannesburg - Two men have been murdered in separate incidents in the Mthatha area, with one being set alight, Eastern Cape police said on Wednesday.

A 34-year-old man was found stabbed to death on Tuesday in the Tsolo area, said Lieutenant Colonel Mzukisi Fatyela.

"He was found murdered and seemingly they [the killers] tried to burn the body," Fatyela said.

In a second incident on Tuesday night, a 29-year-old man was stabbed to death as he was walking from Mthatha with a male friend.

The two were set upon by two men who stabbed the victim. His friend managed to escape.
Fatyela said no arrests had been made.

Murder cases had been opened for both killings and police were investigating.

    Hope they were criminals....but still being poor and committing crime is understandable to a point, but all this killing? Seems endless.

      being poor is no excuse for committing a crime.

    Oh no, is this freedom? Why have people became like animals, when they see a person they feel negative about him or they feel like killing
